WATCH: Travon Walker sends message to Jordan Davis, Nakobe Dean before Jags-Eagles NFL clash

ATHENS — Two of Georgia’s five record-setting first-round picks in the 2022 NFL Draft will meet on Sunday, and the Bulldogs’ Butkus Award-winning linebacker will be there, too.

Travon Walker, the No. 1 overall pick, said he’s eager to see his friends Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean once again when his 2-1 Jacksonville Jaguars play the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles (3-0) at 1 p.m.

“All of us are close, don’t get me wrong, but Jordan Davis and Nakobe, I’m closer to those guys than a lot of other guys,” Walker told Mia O’Brien of Jacksonville’s 1010XL.

“Me and George (Pickens) are close, that’s who I came in with, but Jordan Davis was in my D-Line room, so that was one of my best friends,” Walker said. “And then you have Nakobe, who was my roommate my freshman year and just going through college, we’ve always been close. He knows my family, I know his family, he’s like my brother.”
